Dr. Mark Berger, Chief Medical Officer of Actinium Pharmaceuticals said, “Nuclear medicine physicians are vital to the administration of our targeted radioimmunotherapies. We value the important contributions these physicians make to the field, our clinical trials and ultimately to the administration of these important therapies to patients. We very much look forward to the SNMMI annual meeting where we will have the opportunity to further educate physicians from existing and prospective clinical trial sites on the points of differentiation of our drug candidates Iomab-B, Actimab-A and Actimab-M as well as our alpha particle technology platform.”

Representatives from Actinium’s clinical development, corporate development and executive teams will attend the SNMMI annual meeting.

The team is very much looking forward to updating conference attendees on our accomplishments and learning about recent advances in the field that we can incorporate in our radioimmunotherapy development efforts.”

About Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Actinium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company developing innovative targeted therapies for patients with cancers lacking effective treatment options. Actinium's proprietary platform utilizes monoclonal antibodies to deliver radioisotopes directly to cells of interest in order to kill those cells safely and effectively. The Company's lead product candidate Iomab-B is designed to be used, upon approval, in preparing patients for a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, commonly referred to as bone marrow transplant. A bone marrow transplant is often the only potential cure for patients with blood-borne cancers but the current standard preparation for a transplant requires chemotherapy and/or total body irradiation that result in significant toxicities. Actinium believes Iomab-B will enable a faster and less toxic preparation of patients seeking a bone marrow transplant, leading to increased transplant success and survival rates. The Company is currently conducting a single pivotal 150-patient, multicenter Phase 3 clinical study of Iomab-B in patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) age 55 and older. The Company's second product candidate, Actimab-A, is currently in a multicenter open-label, 53-patient Phase 2 trial for patients newly diagnosed with AML age 60 and over. Actimab-A is being developed to induce remissions in elderly patients with AML who lack effective treatment options and often cannot tolerate the toxicities of standard frontline therapies. In addition, Actinium is developing Actimab-M, which is being studied in patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma in a Phase 1 clinical trial. Actinium is also utilizing its alpha-particle immunotherapy (APIT) technology platform to generate new drug candidates based on antibodies linked to the element Actinium-225 that are directed at various cancers that are blood-borne or form solid tumors. Actinium Pharmaceuticals is based in New York, NY.
